It's been a long time since I've admined Mailman, so I'm not sure.

If Mailman can't do this itself, I'd try to get the MTA that interfaces
with Mailman to do help.  Specifically, create aliases for list2 that
actually reference list1.

Ultimately both SMTP envelope addresses would pass into the same list
inside of Mailman.

list1:             "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post list1"
list1-admin:       "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman admin list1"
list1-bounces:     "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces list1"

list2:             "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post list1"
list2-admin:       "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman admin list1"
list2-bounces:     "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces list1"
